An impressive array of construction for a city supposedly in the economic doldrums!

Construction started this week on Espace Montmorency. The project will have 700 residential units, offices, retails and a hotel. It will be build near the Montmorency metro station in one phase.

Architects: Sid Lee.

I really like that proposal, the only thing that I find a little off is how enclosed that courtyard feels. A few ground level multi storey openings would make a world of difference.

Not a fan of based on how monolithic and overbearing it looks...I don't see this courtyard feeling terrible inviting unless they really push some strong design principles through. Even then, the courtyard might be more of an afterthought.

The glass looks great on Encore. It's not enough to make up for the tower massing and disconnected tower plopped on podium look.

Jesus you're rough. I usually like it really rough, but Encore is Edmonton's nicest residential tower, one of the best in Alberta.

You know how I am on incoherent, "space filling" podiums. I never cared for the architectural design. It's too slim for the modified Templar cross floor plate and lacks balance with all the setbacks and balconies on two sides and sheer glass walls on the others. This is on the corner lot and not mid block.

I don't really care how this ranks among other towers in Alberta; too many towers and not enough time. It's popularity on SSP seems entirely focused on the window wall which is important but, doesn't define the architecture.

In my opinion, it is one of those sexy beasts that doesn't quite live up to the standard on a design wise basis.

Burnaby's ongoing construction megaboom is incredibly impressive.

Queen's Marque, Halifax. More recently a smaller steel-framed structure has gone up on that middle pier. Eventually I think the left "wing" will be fully attached to the main structure (with upper floors passing over an opening for pedestrians). You will be able to walk directly through the complex in a few different ways or follow the boardwalk. You can see some of the sandstone cladding on the upper right. Eventually there will be Muntz metal screens/panels over parts of the building as well. The 3-pronged structure extending into the water is going to be a granite staircase.

Work is getting underway on 98 Albert.

98 Albert street
Location: 90 Albert St & 98 Albert street Winnipeg, MB
Developer: Unknown
Architect: https://www.atlrg.ca/
Status: U/C
Located on a unique and prominent site adjacent Old Market Square in Winnipeg’s historic Exchange District. A 3-storey wedge provides main floor restaurant space with future sidewalk patio, 2 prestige residential units and rooftop terrace with garden. The structure lightly touches and integrates the character of the neighbouring heritage building facade, a former brass foundry. Views and relationship to the vibrant streetscape and public square are paramount.





Up in the lift today at 90 Albert. 11 infilled windows set back 1.5 inches from surrounding brick. Gonna look sweet!
